When you use valet parking services, you may be wondering what would happen if your vehicle were to be involved in an accident. Who would be responsible for the damages?
A no-fault standard — what is it?
Canada is unique in that it legally follows a no fault standard. This means that any accident — no matter who was at fault or how it was caused — becomes the ‘fault’ of the insurance provider of the damaged vehicle.
What does that mean for you?
If you use valet parking services and your vehicle damages another vehicle, that vehicle’s insurance will be responsible for the claim.
If you use valet parking services and another vehicle, or another individual, damages your vehicle, your insurance will be responsible for the claim.
